“Ballet dancers, actors, singers and many other types of artists commune together to support the homeless in New York City,” says TheEdwardMorganBallet Executive Director Joseph Alexander.
At 92 years young, Lynne Charnay is still celebrating life and love. Ms. Charnay is the protege of the wonderful American composer and lyricist Jerry Herman (Hello Dolly). She has appeared in five Broadway shows, including Julia, Jake & Uncle Joe (1961),  John Kandor's first Broadway musical, A Family Affair (1962), The Sunday Man (1964), The Inspector General (1978), and The Grand Tour (1979). Over the decades she has appeared in more off-Broadway and regional productions and revues. She has also been performing in cabaret rooms in New York City for over thirty years. "Lynne Charnay is perfection!" John S. Wilson, The New York Times, and as Rex Reed once said, "You learn something valuable in her presence."
Joseph Alexander is working with producers for a new ballet musical
starring Lynne Charnay and Edward Morgan.

Directed & Choreographed by Edward Morgan, former principal of the original Joffrey Ballet NYC, director of Joffrey II, choreographer of the television show ClubMTV, and now choreographer of his own ballet company TheEdwardMorganBallet.

This Mass For The Ballet is inspired by one of Mr. Alexander’s dance students, part of TheEdwardMorgan Outreach Program. She came up to him in class and said, “I will be late for rehearsal tomorrow because I’m moving into a homeless shelter.” Mr. Alexander recalls that he was actually in shock when the little girl said this to him. He conferred with Edward Morgan who responded by saying the little girl is very talented and mentally stable; his advice was that if she weren’t treated the same as everyone else, she wouldn’t be happy. “So I was afraid,” said Mr. Alexander, “but I turned around and said, ‘DON’T BE LATE!’ And the little girl looked at me and said, ‘Oh don’t worry Mr. Alexander, I already told my mama that we need to move early so we won’t be late!’” Not only did she do a great performance, but she was not late for rehearsal and her excitement and enthusiasm for the program blew Mr. Alexander away.
 
The mission of Every Voice Choirs is to promote the musical and personal growth of youth by helping them discover their voices and share them with pride. We seek to build on students' unique musical interests and experiences, creating ensembles shaped by their diverse members, in which every voice is welcome and every voice truly matters.

UPCOMING PERFORMANCES
Author Carolyn Burke
A literary dance production collaboration: Burke has published three biographies, all to critical acclaim. After spending many years in Paris she was inspired by Piaf’s music to write No Regrets, which has been called "an eloquent embrace of the famed French singer-songwriter" (Publishers Weekly, starred review); "sympathetic . . . captivating . . . highly effective" (New York Review of Books); "masterful storytelling" (Library Journal); and listed among the best books of the year by the San Francisco Chronicle and the Sunday Times. Her book has been translated into many languages, quite suitable since Edith Piaf touched so many people.
